In case you missed it, the Cleveland Guardians are rumored to have signed former Guardians catcher and now World Series champion Austin Hedges, while trading recently acquired catcher Christian Bethancourt to the Miami Marlins.

Hedges must be on vacation because the signing won’t be annnounced for a couple days, after his physical. I tried to examine the logic of the signing last night in an article.
